Self Portrait (c)Rubens House Antwerp

In no other city in the world will you find as many tangible reminders of Rubens as in Antwerp, for he spent most of his life living and working there. It was where he received his training, where he experienced family joys and sorrows, and where he welcomed princes and dignitaries as a diplomat for the Low Countries. It was also the place where he did his painting, becoming by popular acclaim, the greatest painter of his era

His presence is still keenly felt in the city. His statue welcomes visitors to the Groenplaats and more than fifty of his works are on display in various museums and churches, often in the setting for which they were created. His home, studio and grave are all located in Antwerp. Say Antwerp, think Rubens.
